Qlik Sense - Using Button how to select Multiple values in a Field

Hi All,

I am pretty new to this and I have found multiple answers to this question but non of it seems to work on Qlik Sense Enterprise version for me.

I have "Button" and I want multiple rows (characters)  selected when pressed.

Simply I want to select =  "1 - Critical"|"2 - High" when pressed.

So far I tried, 

1. ='("1 - Critical"|"2 - High")' - Did not work

2. ='(1 - Critical|2 - High)' - Did not work

3. =(1 - Critical|2 - High) - Did not even validate

However, If i try just 1 selection it works fine, That is  ='1 - Critical'

To explain more I have 5 selection so Alternative selects are not an option for me too

Thanks @YG  for sharing this, allowed me to create a YTD button:

='(' & concat(distinct {<Month={"<=$(=date(monthstart(today()), 'MMM-YY'))"},Year={"$(=Year(today()))"}>}Month, '|') & ')'

Cheers,

Steve

Hi, I am trying to do something similar to this with Action whereby I want to select all dates from a date field for the last 7 days, does anyone know how to achieve this. I can get it to work for one date, but I need it to select multiple. Thanks

Sorry!  A bit late, but may help someone else in the future!!  Using the new native button, the following works:

 

='=([O.CREATED_DATE] >= Date(Today()-14))'

Hey, just saw your reply and I am in need of the same help. I tried using your respone:

='=([O.CREATED_DATE] >= Date(Today()-14))'

but this didn't work; I tried it by replacing O.CREATED_DATE with the name of my date field and that did not work either. Any other suggestions or help please?

I also tried to list  =Date(Today()-7), Date(Today()-6) but the list doesn't work and I'm not sure what else the syntax would be...but Date(Today()-7) alone works!

Did you make sure that you are using the native button and that the action is 'Select Values matching search criteria'?  I'll try and remember which app I've used this in and see if I can get screenshots.

Not exactly sure what the native button is...ive just been using the button option below that appears when I click on charts

I also do not have the select values matching search criteria option..do you know why or what I could do to fix that?

@roxys373s  - Which version are you on?  That is the native button, however my list has more options, wondering if it wasn't available in a previous version?
